This is amazing, thank you! :grog:
Sure thing! Hope it comes in handy!

This is really great, and I can't wait to see the improvements. I have a question, can you already delete homebrew with this? I didn't see the option.

For suggestions/requests I have several ideas, pick the ones you like!
- Pin/favorite homebrews, and it would be nice to be able to toggle the view with a button (like ZR) to show all/only favorites inside each category easily and fast.
- Autoupdate of Homebrew_Details even in the nsp form (I don't know if this is a hard thing to do).
- Battery/wifi/time indicators at the top are always welcome.
- If you implement the app updater for other apps, it would be nice to have an 'Updates' category where you see all the apps that could be updated. Also, it would be nice to have an icon in the basic list view to know that an app can be updated that shows in any category view. Something like: AppName 1.0♻️
- Number of homebrew and the current position in the list. Like 3/12 at the bottom. and in the categories on the left having something like: All apps (12)

- Also, a couple of small issues, the extended info is not scrollable and the linebreaks in the text appear as '\n' (pretty obvious stuff so just take those as a friendly reminder).

Thanks a lot for the app, so far looks really interesting and I really want to see what it becomes!

No file managing yet, but that's coming real soon! Excellent suggestions all around. Thank you so much for your input! Also thanks for the issue reports. Even things that seem small and obvious can slip through the cracks of a complex app, so I welcome any small nitpicks you come across!

I'm glad you like it so far! Expect many updates on the way. :)

Speaking of which...

-------------------------------------------------

Changelog: [v0.40]
- New intro screen to sit between launching and scanning (so you don't have to watch a blank screen while it loads) which also holds framework for a progress screen in the future
- Even cleaner fixes for different cases of 0 apps
- Version number noted in app
- Some small tweaks
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience

-------------------------------------------------

Changelog: [v0.42]
- App counts now shown next to category type
- Update checker to notify you if there's a new version available (can't auto-update ...yet)
- New Manage tab in an entry's menu with Delete function (Note: deleting an app does not remove its entry until a rescan, but the file is gone and you can't delete it twice)
- You can now go back to the intro screen to rescan your app folder for changes

I love the idea of this, it's something I've wanted for such a long time, however, 0.42 crashes on my Switch when I click to scan.

Firmware: 10.0.3 - Atmos 0.13.0

Haha, I pride myself to be! Happy to hear it! Thanks for testing it!

Keep it up, I adore this and would happily use this as a HB Menu replacement.

A few suggestions (not even sure if they're possible but hey, and I'm sure half have been suggested anywah) I'd make are:

  • Batch delete
  • Launch apps inside App Manager
  • App categories
  • Show storage capacity
  • Show firmware and cfw version
  • Show if you're in sysNAND or emuNAND
  • FTP
  • Reboot to payload/select payload to boot into
I'm thinking of my dream app I think, but you never know!

Thank you again, can't wait to see this evolve.

This is a great app. Thanks for your work.

I agree with everyone, app launch functionality would be great and then it would seamlessly become my go-to for launching.

Thanks, guys! I'm feeling pretty good about app launching in some private tests I did, but it's not quite there yet. In the meantime...

------------------------------

Changelog: [v0.50]
- Fix for app store app counting
- New debug panel that shows variable states and some deeper stats I'm soon going to use in the future
- Full settings framework for easily saving and loading preferences to file
- As such, there's a new settings panel with the first toggleable option, scanning just the /switch/ folder or the /switch/ folder and all subfolders

Holy shit! This homebrew just getting better and better! Thanks a lot for this!
You bet! How about another update?

--------------------------------

Changelog: [v0.65]
- Add more search options, including scanning the SD root and the full SD card
- Added a safe mode so that if the app crashes during a search (for example, when scanning a full SD card would take toooo long and you force close the app) it resets some settings to default so you never get locked out of the app

I like the separation of app store apps and non app store apps.
This way I can finally replace all non app store apps by app store ones so they are updatable there. :)
